    Nope, working from home, and the GS needs tranny work. Popping that front up too much over the last couple years did it in. Toying with the idea of getting the new GS1200 Adventure, but it's a lot of scratch.

    Now I know this is a little unorthodox, but for solo warm weather trips up to vermont (where noones gonna mess with your sh*t), nothin' beats it. Carry a day pack or throw some bungees on the rack, and you've got everything you need for a few days. And the 50 mpg aint too bad either. Oh yeah, and this thing goes anywhere...

    I change my vote. After dealing with two herniated discs for awhile now I have concluded that Toyotas are not for people over 6' tall or people with back problems. They're too small and the seats suck. Before I got rid of mine I could barely get in and out. Shifting sent pain down my leg. My new vote is for anything comfortable, like the F-150 I drive now.

    Hauled Mogs on some NATO missions I flew a few years back. Sweet rig for fishing to be sure. Still my vote goes for the Range Rover Defender 90's. All the suger AND twice the caffeine.

    I'm changin' my vote. The new Suzuki Grand Vitara has full locking diff.s and can still be had for less than $20K. Oh yeah, it get's killer MPG. and plenty of leg room.

    I went on a trip this dec. from Vancouver to Durango then through the Grand Canyon down to Phoenix for a party and saw a former garbage truck turned into the RV from hell. It was incredible...all military grey and mysterious with matching mt. bikes on a rack in back...no windows and huge wheels... very intimidating to my measly '96 f-250 4x4 but probably better gas milage...

    Yeah, give me 10 grand and I would too. The klr650 is a poor man's f650gs which is a baby r1150gs. sweet pic, though. man, I can't wait to get back on my bike... 3 more days...
